Quit it with the Freeforms

Since,there are five Samsung freeforms available, I believe that they should make a different series or touch/smartphone version of the series.

Wow somewhere there's a warehouse full of this hardware...

...and it gets flashed by each vendor out there. I've seen this made by Palm, HTC, and pretty sure LG if not Samsung has used this once before.

It ran Windows 5 back in the day, and i'm sure there was a 6.1 version at some point too, from one of these guys. heh

Funny to see this thing pop up again with yet another vendors name on it.

Such a small niche form factor, yet keeps getting rehashed for use every couple of years as an attempt (or was) to get Blackberry users to move onto windows.

Fun stuff.
This is a messaging phone running BREW. It has more in common with a flip-phone than a smartphone.

Buy to make your text messaging life easier banging out a million texts a month with its full keyboard instead of the numeric keypad of a flip phone....
